National Trails Day – June 2, 2007 – Valley View Park

We had a lot of volunteers show up and did a lot of trimming, spreading of gravel, building fair weather crossings and hauling out trash.

The Beginning 2006

On December 14, 2006, the County Park staff met with concerned citizens regarding the future of establishing multi-use trails within Prince William County. -Up to this point there was no strategic vision for accomplishing such an endeavor nor were there any details for accomplishing such an effort in the County-s Plan.

Much discussion focused on the need for planning information on Parks, multi-use Trails, accessible streams, and other open spaces on maps that would be easily understood by County citizens. -The need for private, business and county government partnerships and building relationships among those and various existing organizations will be a key factor to future success.

At the end of the meeting, the citizens realized a real need for a citizen-s action group to assist Prince William County in developing a strategic vision and an achievable plan for County-wide network of trails and streams for passive recreation activities.
